“I wish there was a bar I could send opposing teams to and get them hammered or something – I could tell my buddies in New York to leave their places open or something. Playing for the Yankees, guys come at you extremely hard. I have to be ready, or I’ll be embarrassed.”― Roger
“I think anything is possible if you have the mindset and the will and desire to do it and put the time in.”― Roger
“It was an exciting time for me personally because the number of times I’ve been to the playoffs, that was the opportunity to obtain the first ring. That was special, that’s for sure.”― Roger
